Huawei P9 renders leak, revealing dual-rear camera and plenty of color options

The Huawei P9 is not expected to make an official appearance until after the hullabaloo of MWC, although the company does have a press event scheduled, but that hasn’t stopped a new selection of leaks appearing online. The purported press images of the P9 show off a rear dual camera configuration, a fingerprint scanner located in the usual place, and quite possibly a metal body too.

A closer inspection of the rear camera configuration suggests that we are looking at a laser focusing system located just underneath the dual-tone LED flash. It’s a bit tough to make out on the darker models, but you can see it clearly on the brighter colored cases. Previous rumors suggest that this will be a dual 12 megapixel camera configuration, accompanied by an 8 megapixel front facing camera.

Other rumored hardware specifications include a 5.2-inch 1080p display, the company’s own Kirin 955 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and a 2,900mAh battery. There have also been suggestions that Huawei may be preparing to launch a selection of P9 smartphones, ranging from a lower cost Lite model through to a larger and more powerful enhanced edition.

It looks like there will be plenty of color options for the Huawei P9 too. The renders shows that black, gold, grey, pink and white should be the standard offerings. The slim bezel and curved edge design is pretty sleek looking too, if you ask me.

What do you think about this quick look at the Huawei P9?

  • HTC/Apple clone or whoever was the initiator of that design :-)

    Looks so damn sexy.

  • charlie Jason

    I can smell the disgusting software even from here.

    • Spec-wise Huawei are good, except the gpus which are not on the same level as the Snapdragon counterparts. The UI is indeed awful…

      • Andre Senge

        Emui ain’t that bad, don’t know why you people bitch about it.

        • Jake

          I agree while I am not a huge fan of EMUI. I do admit it does have a few interesting features that are not found on other android skins.

      • Jake

        That is not necessarily true as the Huawei Mate 8 performance blows the competition out of the water even when compared to the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Note 5.

  • Peter Balga

    Iphone 5, is that you?

  • Shellyman 8K

    Huawei emotion UI looks terrible.

  • Box

    SWEEEET i want this! :-)

  • systemupdate

    Huawei is exactly doing what Samsung did when they started getting bigger. Copy/Paste the same design and make a billion phones. Also copy from others.
